Chocolate and Peanut Butter Granola


When I was in college, I ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch almost everyday.  I was a peanut butter and jelly connoisseur.  


I had perfected the peanut butter to jelly ratio.  I preferred smoothy peanut butter and jam with pieces of soft, macerated fruit.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken


I don't often shop at Whole Foods.  It's not conveniently located and kind of pricy.  


I grace their isles every once in a while.  When I do, I often buying trail mix from the bulk bin.

Roasted Carrots with Chive Vinaigrette


Vegetable dishes are not popular items on food blogs.  People read food blogs to look at pictures of desserts.  Dishes that involve chocolate, caramel, or peanut butter are going to have more views than roasted carrots.


These carrots are not decadent.  Instead they are versatile, nourishing, and tasty.  They're not as desirable as a chocolate and caramel brownie, but they have a fraction of the calories.

Sausage, Caramelized Onion, Dried Cherry and Walnut Pizza


I'm going to have a new experience this week.  Some female coworkers and I are going to a Korean spa.  


They have gone together in the past, but this will be my first time.

Ruben Brussels Sprout Salad


Today is ride your bike to work day.  I assume it is a local government sponsored event.  They have check points along the bike trails that lead to the city.


It's pretty official; you have to preregister.  I think they are even going to hand out t-shirts.

Peanut Butter and Blueberry Muffins


I'm mystified by computers.  I'm part of the generation that should feel perfectly at ease in the digital age, but I don't.


My mother sometimes asks me computer question, and I have no answer nine times out of ten.

Ruben Quesadilla


Since I moved, I have wanted to ride my bike to work.  Today I did it.  I feel a sense of accomplishment.


It was a beautiful day for a bike ride.  It was sunny and not too hot.
